AM/NS India aims 40 mt capacity by 2035

Dilip Oommen, Chief Executive Officer, ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India (AM/NS India), stated that the demand for steel in India would increase due to the country's low per capita consumption and the government's focus on infrastructure development. The company's current capacity of 9 million tonne would expand to 40 million tonne by 2035. When asked about the company's plans for acquisitions, Oommen referred to the list of previous acquisitions that began with the acquisition of Essar Steel from the bankruptcy court in 2019.

India's per capita steel consumption is currently low, indicating that it can only go upwards, especially with the need for infrastructure development in various sectors like roads, ports, and airports.
